SummerSlam 2021 will take place on August 22nd, 2021. A location for the event has not been confirmed yet.
It was previously reported that WWE has been considering an outdoor stadium setting in Phoenix, Arizona, or somewhere in Texas to hold SummerSlam.
Sports Illustrated reported last month that Summerslam would take place in an arena in front of live fans. The company has stated publicly they hope to resume touring in the second half of 2021 and The Biggest Party Of The Summer could very well be the first major show since ‘Mania to have fans.
WWE President & Chief Revenue Officer Nick Khan spoke with Joe Otterson of Variety and was asked whether WWE has any plans to host more events with a live audience after WrestleMania and he replied with a positive answer.
“Any plans? Yes. Any plans we can share? Stay tuned,” Khan stated hinting at some bright news around SummerSlam 2021. “But just know that once we’re back on the road, we’re on the road full time. We’re not looking to do other one offs. Again, this was WrestleMania. And we felt it needed to be done for the fans. So look for news coming soon.”
WWE planned to hold SummerSlam in Boston last year, but that didn’t happen because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
